Here is the panel that I released with the latest postx-programs upgrade.
python3 python-pyqt5 python-minimal
The panel is heavily centered around my other programs but you can modify it according to your needs. Only the package manager points to a program that was not written by me. The program in question is the synaptic package manager.

Unlike the Gtk version of Launchy, the QT version does close with ALT+F4. You can start the program via terminal with: python /home/somewhere/launchy
If needed make Launchy executable with: chmod +x launchy
Tip. You can create shortkeys to make closing and opening of Launchy to happen more easily.
29th of May: Toggle script.
Put the following line to your .xbindkeysrc (or any other autostart file)
Then download the Launchy toggle script and place it to the location above. You can customize the location to fit your needs. I recommend that you install x11-utils (sudo apt-get install x11-utils) just to make sure that everything works. You need to quit and launch your desktop again. After the previous Launchy-QT should now hide or appear when F4 key is pressed.
